The point is that Bradford (Odsal) will be the biggest Stadium in the UK that already has a speedway track.  

It’s still “ pie in the sky” whether there will be speedway at Osdal, never mind a FIM standard spec.

Why not?

Fences not a problem, safety areas not a problem... what else is there?

I mean they changed track size in the rulebook to fit Cardiff...

loads more to it than that !! health and safety for fans etc and who is going to pay a six figure sum ???  as it stands there is no speedway promoter so it's pie in the sky :nono:

U said it needs FIM approval and I said thats not a problem. FIM is not about health and safety. It dont need a speedway promoter to have  SGP at Odsal. They need a bspa/acu licensed promoter that says I have this guy, he pays, lets do it at Odsal.

well when you find a person with six figure sum to come forward please let us all know the track has not been passed by british authorities for even national league yet talk a running before you can walk :unsure::rolleyes: pie in the sky !!

Has the stadium got a health and safety certificate, let alone the track. When was the last time Odsal staged a full capacity sporting event.

Speedway has been gone from Bradford for a few years now so is there still the appetite and support for speedway in the city. You can lay the track, select the team but all of that is pretty pointless if the people are not there to support it.

It's been over 23 years now, the last season in 1997 they won the league and the crowds were poor then, I cant see there being an appetite now. Maybe for one off bigger meetings.

I am a little confused and possibly naive but what is passed by the british authorities at Cardiff that allows them to run a GP?

Gps are a law unto themselves and that git who sticks his sickly product in everyone's hand before they're interviewed. The statement to which you answered was about league racing.

 All FIM meetings need a FMN (acu) and they need a local club. Cardiff has always been promoted by BSI, dont know which local/uk club they use. Or they just use acu.

I guess that if it doesn't have one now, it'll have to have one soon with the stox starting up and the Bulls planning to return mid year.
